Acer Chromebooks are the talk of the education realm. Chromebooks take only seconds to start up and provide users with thousands of different apps, virus-protection, and a cloud to store and save data. According to Chris Smith, Director of Education Technology Communication Services Bath Central School District in New York, with the use of technology (such as chromebooks), “teacher’s roles [are shifting] to become supporters of learning and [helping] students understand what it means to be adaptable and collaborative” (Beyond Textbooks, p.3). Many schools are beginning to “flip” their learning by making students responsible for the independent study of material at home (that goes beyond more than just homework) while having teachers act as simply a guide in the classroom. With chromebooks, students are able to watch lectures or lessons while also having the opportunity to expand their learning horizons by participating in online tutorials… all from the comfort of their own homes, freeing up time in the classroom for more one-on-one learning experiences and interactive learning projects. Acer Chromebooks provide students with a new sense of independence. Now-a-days, students will need to possess a whole new set of skills in order to be successful in our technology-driven society. In the Bath Central School District, the IT department gained enough resources to connect their entire school district and are now able to focus their resources on curriculum and professional development, shifting the focus from the teacher to the student.Our future generations need to learn to become independent, collaborative, responsive students. Using Acer technology such as chromebooks, students can rely less on their teachers and more on themselves. Chromebooks and other technological sources allow students to apply what they’re learning to the real world using means such as video conferencing and blog sites.
